3:10 To Yuma was a well directed, well acted, well shot western. And yet, there’s nothing really spectacular that stands out here. The story is a bit silly near the end, especially Russell Crowe’s character’s motivation. But Ben Foster continues to amaze with his acting.
Sunshine was so very close to being one of the best and most realistic sci fi movies with its incredible special effects, smart plot line, and fantastic performances. But, unfortunately, it got seriously derailed for the final third of the movie. Still, the first 2/3 is definitely good enough to make this movie worth seeing. Also, this movie has some of the best unknown actors (Cillian Murphy, Rose Byrne, Michelle Yeoh, Hiroyuki Sanada, Cliff Curtis, Benedict Wong, and even Chris Evans) that have yet to make names for themselves, but hopefully will. Only true cinephiles would be able to name another movie for each of these actors.
Oh so close.
Also, note to self: the sun is super hot.
The Captain on the sun shield. “What can you see?!” [SPOILER]
What a funny quote that’s a twist on the standard sci fi genre.
Beautiful and terrifying scene. “Goodbye, Searle.” [SPOILER]
